Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy, also known as NEOUCOM, is a community-based, state medical school that offers a combined B.S./M.D. program that allows students to graduate with their B.S. and M.D. in as few as six or seven years. NEOUCOM has its campus in Rootstown, Ohio, east of Akron, and is the only medical school in the country that has a partnership with four state universities: the University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, and Youngstown State University, as well as 17 hospitals. This relationship allows the College to focus on its mission of providing highly trained physicians oriented to the practice of medicine at the community level, while at the same time remaining cost-effective for students and the taxpayers of Ohio. Class size is typically around 105-110 medical students.
